Last year, after Michele Bachmann launched a smear campaign against Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin and alleged that there had been “deep penetration ” by the Muslim Brotherhood in high levels of government, People For the American Way launched a campaign  to get Bachmann kicked out of the House Select Committee on Intelligence. On the Intelligence Committee, she has special access to sensitive national security information, which probably shouldn’t be in the hands of a fear-mongering conspiracy theorist. But this week, Bachmann announced  that she had been reassigned to the Intelligence Committee, despite the protests.
Back in July, we published a rundown of Bachmann’s worst conspiracy theories . Since then, she’s added to her repertoire, claiming that President Obama has “enforced Islamic speech codes  here in the U.S.” and is intent on imposing Sharia law at home  and abroad .
